Advil (ibuprofen) PM: Advil PM contains 38 mg of diphenhydramine citrate and 200mg of ibuprofen. The diphenhydramine can help with sleep. However, if she doesn't need the ibuprofen for pain or inflammation - then a medication without it is likely to be a better choice.

A 67-year-old female asked:
Can I take Advil (ibuprofen) PM every night?

Not Tylenol (acetaminophen): The PM part yes. But, taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) daily is extremely hard in the liver. Use the generic for Benadryl. That is what causes sedation.
